Product Overview

The Modular Chaos Engine#1 is a Kontakt percussion instrument packed to the gills with 785 binaurally recorded "found sounds" from a wide range of unlikely sources. Using a complex bespoke sequencing engine built with Kontakt scripting these sounds come to life quickly and easily making it a fantastic tool for almost instant rhythmic invention.

Watch the video for a quick walk-through of some of the possibilities.



Incredible Diversity

You can use anything from a grunting pig, to a firework display, to stamping on the stage at Glyndebourne Opera House as your "kick" drum and combine it with a "snare" made from a Ladyshave mixed with a walk through deep snow, and a hi hat made from crackling onion skins or a wobbly horse fence. There are an unthinkable amount of sound variation lurking in there.
